I wish that I could say that because I have been blogging for more than five years of my life and at least 2,000 articles under my belt across the Internet, that I have become some kind of a guru with crafting the best posts you would ever read.

30 Days of Instagram for Churches

30 Days of Instagram for Churches by Chris Wilson

In the old study (now more a storage slot) in my parents house are a collection of boxes filled with our memories.
